    Getting back to basics;

    If you have an auto-routing map product, such as City Navigator Australia, but want to lock down the route on the PC then;

    1. first create a series of waypoints

    2. then use the route tool to join these waypoints together into a route

    3. then transfer both the waypoints and route to your GPS

    This will give you a route similar to your PC created route and consistent routing behaviour across a range of different Garmin GPS units.

    ie do not use the route tool on its own to create your route.


    To DR Rock;
    Your observations on the routing behaviour of both MapSource and GPSmap 60CSx while true have created a lot of confusion.
    Most people simply want a basic route that behaves consistently

    I wasn't confused. I thought it was pretty creative and a neat solution. Not for everyone, granted, but innovative for sure.
